    I am looking for a program that could recover my lost data from my hard drive. I had to reformat my hard drive to reload windows and I deleted the second hard drive in my computer where my back up data is stored. Is there a program that can get my data back in the folder not by there extension?

    Was the data on a another partition on the same drive? Or a second physical drive?

    I have two hard drives in my computer. One is a 120gb and the other is 200gb. 120 is where widows is loaded and the 200 is where my backup data is. So ya its my second drive (200gb) that im trying to get back.

    Reinstalling Windows on the 120GB drive should not have affected the 200GB drive. Does the drive not show up at all, or shows up empty, or access denied?

    You have to explain "deleted my second drive"...do you mean you accidentally reformatted it?
